Good American red. Tart and bitter; a bit of a bight. Chewy palate.

Special brew only at the Watering Hole restaurant/bar in Lincoln, NE (home of Empyrean. Pours a nice amber and copper color with a strong (hoppy) first taste and crisp finish. Worth checking out if you are in Lincoln. The dry herb/hop taste doesn't overpower or detract from this beer. Further it smells fantastic when first poured. Goes great with bbq wings!
